You know that children have needs, too. This module will give you the information you need to start helping them with those needs. Some needs might be physical (like your child’s health), others might be emotional (like their sleep and their moods) others might be emotional (like the behavior of their peers). Some needs are very simple and some needs are very complex. It all depends on your child, but what needs you think are more important.
One of your first tasks is to understand your child’s need for boundaries. You might find yourself surprised at how many need boundaries, and how many times you don’t notice.
You know that you can’t make your child listen or give in, or change your mind, or try something new. This module will show you where you need to go to find that. and why. You’ll learn why you can’t talk, why you can’t give in or make changes to your child’s behavior, and why you need to listen and be able to connect with your child.
You know that you need to be consistent, not only with the rules that you have set for them, but also with the behaviors that you want them to use. and the choices that they make.
